Newsletter – Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th May 2017 – Week 3

PLAYING TOPS

We are very excited, and relieved, to announce that the new playing jerseys have finally arrived!

We will be handing them out to the children in the clubhouse at Dempsey this Saturday morning. As you can imagine, it will get very busy, so please can we ask that you stick to the times allocated for your age squads to pick up the jerseys. Do not wait until after training has finished, as the next age groups will be up at the clubhouse collecting their jerseys and the smaller sizes will have been put away.

If you get home and find the jersey does not fit, don’t worry – just drop me a note and let me know you child’s name, age group, and what size you’d like, and I’ll bring a replacement the following weekend. Please make sure you keep the jersey clean and preferably with tags on if you’re going to swap it.

For those who are unable to come down this weekend, do not fear – we will be keeping a record of who has been given a top and who has not, and we will bring down tops for those who missed out the following weekend. Every player will receive a new top, so if you are not here over the next 2 weeks, we will save one for you.

SATURDAY: There is no training for the U8 and U9 this Saturday as they will be taking part in the JRCS Mini Tournament being held at TRC.

PARKING

Please can we remind parent to avoid parking at the car park at Dempsey, especially during the early morning sessions. In particular, please avoid parking on the hill coming into Dempsey, as this leaves space for only one car to pass and causes bottlenecks both coming in and out of Dempsey.

More parking can be found behind Ben and Jerrys at Dempsey Hill.
